Frequently Asked Questions
1. When I am repeating the phrases and dialogues, how do I know if I am speaking correctly? How do I know if my pronunciation is correct?
Just use the built in sound recorder on your computer. Then, play back your phrase and compare it to mine. If it sounds about the same, then you are on the right track!
Every computer is different.
For Windows 7, the sound recorder application is found in the accessories folder (where the calculator is).
If you are using a smart phone or tablet, just use the "voice memos" application, or equivalent.
2. Besides this website, is there anything else I can do to improve?
Yes. Watch every episode of St. Elsewhere - Season 1, an entertaining medical drama full of dialogue and useful terminology. The DVD has the option of Spanish audio on the language menu, and of course subtitles if needed. I recommend that you hit pause sometimes and repeat aloud what they are saying. Good luck!
